Dover Athletic is delighted to announce that striker Alfie Pavey has rejoined the club on loan from Maidstone United for a month.

The 26-year-old, who will wear the number 26 shirt, scored 12 goals in 38 appearances for us in his previous spell at Crabble after arriving from Havant & Waterlooville in November 2018.

He left Dover to sign for Barnet for an undisclosed fee in September 2019 before joining Maidstone in June 2021.

After spending his youth career with Maidstone, where he scored 300 goals in three years for the Stones’ academy and youth sides, Pavey earned a move to Championship side Millwall.

In his three years with the Lions, Pavey, who trained with his new teammates on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s National League clash at Yeovil Town, spent time on loan with Barnet, Bromley, Aldershot, Hampton and Richmond, and Dartford.

Following a brief spell with Welling United, Pavey returned to Dartford, scoring 28 goals in 38 matches and winning the National League South Player of the Season award.

He then joined promoted Havant & Waterlooville and scored four times in 19 appearances before making the move to Crabble.

Welcome back, Alfie !!
